I have an ever growing Passion for Pincushions. There must be a limit between passion and mania and I think I could be about to pass that limit! I made this little Mountain Pin Cushion as a joke for myself. I absolutely love Pin Cushions and little things in general. My parents know something about this... I have collected all sorts of small things in childhood and I must admit I haven't improved much now! My passion for small things includes match boxes used... not for matches:
This match box inspired the mountain pin cushion:
It's a German firm that makes pretty match boxes with photos or patterns on the front.
It was snowing when I got this match box so I thought the little white balls on the pins would look like snowflakes... well, sort of!
I made it just to tease myself but it's not such a bad idea for taking pins around with you and not hurting yourself, is it?
OK, but what do I do with all the matches now?!
I'm collecting fun Match Box and Pin Cushion ideas on our Pinterest boards. So many great projects to admire!
Linking up with Le Challenge. The next challenge is Tradition. That's a brilliant theme.
